Police: Man killed from gunfire with Upper Peninsula officer
IRON MOUNTAIN, Mich. (AP) — Police in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula say an armed robbery suspect was killed and an officer wounded when the two fired shots at each other after a car chase and crash.
Iron Mountain police say officers were searching Monday for a man who stole a vehicle and tried to rob a woman at gunpoint when an officer spotted the car. The department says the officer chased the car until it crashed about a minute later.
The department says backup officers arrived soon after gunfire between the officer and suspect. Both the officer and 20-year-old man were taken to a hospital, where the man died. The officer was treated for a head wound and released.
Authorities didn’t immediately release the identities of the man who died or the officer.
